If you’re new around here you may not know that at the beginning of the year, I committed to replacing something I would usually buy from the store with a homemade alternative. My big idea was to replace one thing a week for an entire year and that this would be a gradual way to eliminate processed food and to force me to be a little more creative in the kitchen. At first I thought it would be easy, then I realised that even just one thing a week was actually quite a lot for someone who bought several things ready made! But I had made a commitment and suddenly we are halfway through the year and I’ve stuck to it! It has been challenging but definitely one of the best things I’ve done, and even though my trolley at the supermarket is looking more boring every week it is exciting knowing that I don’t need to buy packets and jars of things – I can just make them myself!
So in celebration of the fact that I am halfway through this challenge (which also means that it is only 6 MONTHS TIL CHRISTMAS!) and because we are at the beach with no internet this weekend so I had to write this post in advance, I thought I would do a round-up of 10 of my favourite made from scratch items. 10 things that I know I won’t be going back to buying ready made!
What made from scratch items do you love making? I’d love to hear your favourites, or things that you’d like to try – I’ve still got another 6 months to go!
